I just love that the bridge is called Hell Gate Bridge. It brings to mind images of demons and hellspawn erupting from some portal to the netherworld. Trains go in through one side of the portal, and a massive snakelike demon emerges from the other, wreaking havoc and laying waste to the countryside.

In reality, the only thing that erupts from the bridge are freight trains and the occasional Amtrak line. And while Amtrak trains are certainly pretty hellish in their own right, they’re not actually of hell, sadly enough.
